Nerd Corps and Prof. Stephen Hawking Developing Animated Series

Variety reports that Prof. Stephen Hawking and Nerd Corps Entertainment are developing a new animated series based on the George Greenby series of books written by Hawking and his daughter Lucy Hawking. The series will focus on the title character, an 11-year old boy, and his best friend Annie Bellis and their supercomputer-with-an-attitude Cosmos, as they explore the universe and travel through space and time to learn about science and physics. Nerd Corps is planning 26 half-hour episodes, with additional development for other platforms. Pure Grass Films will be the executive producers, co-financers, and distributors for several territories.

  1. If Hawking's most recent public comments are any indication, this show will be about trying to stave off the sentient robot apocalypse and preparing for an alien invasion.
